Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has reacted emotionally to the opening of the club’s beautiful stadium in north London.
For almost two years, Tottenham have been playing outside of their true city with Wembley stadium becoming the team’s temporary home over the course of the 2017/18 season and much of this campaign so far.
Spurs’ new ground was expected to be opened at the start of this season back in August, but certain hiccups in the construction saw the club continue to postpone the grand opening to spring of 2019.
Mauricio Pochettino, who has done brilliantly to elevate the club in Europe ever since his arrival almost half a decade ago, will now have a beautiful new ground to watch his side compete in the Premier League and Champions League.
The Tottenham boss has reacted emotionally to the opening of Spurs’ new stadium and he has admitted that ‘we are nearly crying’ as the club gets ready for a great new era.
“It’s unbelievable, it is so difficult to explain, only with a few words. We all feel the same. It’s so exciting,” Pochettino said as quoted by Yahoo Sports.
“I got the same feeling on the last day when we left White Hart Lane. We were crying and now the first day, here at the new stadium, the same emotion. We are nearly crying.
“Our dream becomes true and first of all we have to say thank you to Daniel Levy, because in 2001 when he started to believe in that dream he made it possible for everyone to be here today and he deserves big applause – and all the board.”
